Pours dark brown with fluffy khaki head. Nose is slightly metallic. Roasty dark malt and cigar tobacco flavor. Relatively light mouthfeel. PS: OMG would you people STOP whining about the hops?!? If you don't like hops stick to bud light and apple cider and leave beer reviews to the grown ups.

I'm coping this review as its a good description- Interesting balance. First taste is hop APA ale-ness (albeit very abruptly) then you're left with this nice brown ale chocolatey warm winter taste. Very hoppy smell, very dark brown color. Nice taste, but an amazing split of taste From a noticeable bitter hit to the cool and ruminating winter ale flavor

Dark wheat malt & super hoppy. Bizarre combo, but deliciously addictive.

Bitter hop after taste. No thanks!

It's pretty good. Coffee/chocolatey flavor. Way hoppy, but it's somehow ok on this one.

Nice maltiness and balance - a very good beer for the season, and richer than some other winter brews.

Eh...it was kinda mediocre. I'm not a huge fan of hoppy beers, so this was right on the edge of being too hoppy. Other than that it was relatively good, just not very memorable.

Good, darker than I thought, touch of hops. And it's a good thing because if I hadn't had about 6 of these I'd never be able to deal with the looneys here at Sears! How many people are buying wrenches for Christmas? Holy hammered! (See what I did there?)

Mediocre for the price, but drinkable.
